Fishing ban set in Visayan Sea
MetadataShow full item record
Fishing within the Visayan Sea is prohibited for three months starting Nov. 15, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources said. Fisheries Administrative Order (FAO) 167-3 series of 2013 established the closed season that specifically prohibits the catching, selling, and marketing of sardines, herring, and mackerel. BFAR regional director Remia Aparri said the closed season allows herrings, sardines, and mackerels to spawn, thus making fishing sustainable in the Visayan Sea.
